General description of the work Neurophysiologists undertake
Neurophysiologists are involved in the measurement of nerve activity and neuromuscular damage. They undertake nerve conduction tests to estimate nerve damage. They may be involved in medical negligence cases in assessing the type and extent of damage to a nerve following an injury or surgical damage. Neurophysiologists are unlikely to be the subject of a medical negligence claim themselves.
